Federico Silvestro (SM IEEE 2016) received the electrical engineering degree and the Ph.D. degree in electric power systems from the University of Genoa in 1998 and 2002, respectively. He is currently Full Professor at DITEN, University of Genoa. The research developed concerning several issues includes: development and implementation of models of electricity market, management and control of HV power system and electrical distribution systems in the presence of distributed generation, real-time control and management of electrical loads. The results of the scientific work were presented in more than 200 publications in journals and national and international conferences.
Federico Silvestro has been a reviewer for journals and international conferences such as Electric Power Systems Research, IEEE Transaction on Power Systems, PSCC, EEM, Powertech concerning electrical systems for energy. He was the secretary of the CIGRE Working Group C1.04 – Conseil International des Grands Réseaux Électriques (International Council on Large Electric Systems) for the theme “Application and Developments of dynamic models required to support practical planning” in 2006-2007. Prof. Silvestro is actually a member of the CIGRE Working Group 06 and secretary of IEEE MSCC.” Since 2001 he lectured at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Genoa.
